Please support our Varsity View Community Association Rink Renovation Project Raffle!
Our local Varsity View community skating rink brings together adults and children alike for fun with friends and family all winter long with skating and hockey. It feels like old fashioned place where friends and strangers meet, come and go, join an informal game of hockey or skate around and have a chat. From young kids, to college students, to grandparents, all play together and the natural harmony created is infectious.
This community rink is in dire need of a renovation, as the boards and fences are damaged and even dangerous. We are hoping to raise money to re-fence, re-board and regrade the rink, but we must raise money to make this dream a reality!
We created a raffle with the following fabulous prizes, some donated by businesses in our community:
Grand Prize: $1500 cash 2nd Prize: $200 cash plus Crew Rowhouse 12 class pass valued at $225
3rd Prize: $200 cash plus $175 All in the Wild Gallery gift certificate
4th, 5th, 6th and 7th Prize: $50 D’lish by Tish gift cards
3 tickets for $10 or 1 ticket for $5 Draw date: FEBRUARY 23, 2021
Covid-19 put a damper on our fundraising efforts, and the need for community members to play outside all year-round is greater than ever!
We offer contactless ticket purchase by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and using e-transfer to that email. We will send you a picture of the tickets and ticket numbers, and if you desire the original tickets we will mail them to you.
This is a great local cause and every dollar raised is a dollar that goes straight to the renovation!
This year, since we can’t meet in person, the Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind experience with both physical and virtual components.
On Run Day, Varsity View community residents will join the live-streamed online opening ceremonies at 9:30 am CST before heading out to walk or run in the neighbourhood. Several 1 KM and 5 KM routes are set up in the city for people to use on Run Day. The North Route and the Central Route are the routes closest to the Varsity View community but residents are welcome to use any route they would like to take.
Being physically apart won’t stop us from coming together to change the future of breast cancer. Join us and run or walk your way on October 4th. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Saskatoon CIBC Run for the Cure Committee through their facebook group “Saskatoon – Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run For the Cure”. Register today at cibcrunforthecure.com.
